Impaired T-cell differentiation in diabetic foot ulceration.


PMID 26996067

Abstract

Foot ulceration is one of the most debilitating complications associated with diabetes, but its cause remains poorly understood. Several studies have been undertaken to understand healing kinetics or find possible therapies to enhance healing. However, few studies have been directed at understanding the immunological alterations that could influence wound healing in diabetes. In this study, we analysed the T-cell receptor (TCR) repertoire diversity in TCR-αβ
